Bootleg: Career Suicide - On The Radio

Posted: Tuesday, March 22, 2011 by Fashion Munx in Labels: , ,

Although the most noted band in Toronto punk and hardcore of the 2000's has to be Fucked Up, I have to say Career Suicide is my personal favourite. Mixing 80's hardcore with tinges 60's garage doesn't sound highly original today but unlike the legions of bands you could apply that genre distinction to after the Bronx blew up, Career Suicide doesn't sound much like them at all. Sure there is speed, swagger and sing along but is completely unique.

Today I've combined two radio sets that CS has done, one is a quite easy to find but not often circulated set they did for the Equalizing Distort radio show for CIUT in Toronto and the other which was recorded for CJLO in Montreal is not as easy to find. The EXD set list is mainly focusing on stuff that can be found on their Anthology of Releases and conveniently the CJLO set list mainly focuses on material from Anthology of Releases Vol. 2 and their Attempted Suicide LP. Therefore, if you've never heard the band before this is as good an intro as any. The sound quality is good as far as a live set go since they are from studio sessions and I've tried to clean them up as best I could. Enjoy!
